All the details on what you can do with us now before the classes are back!
The honest answer here is there isn't an exact answer to this question - different clients prefer and respond better to different methods. Some have injuries and may require more 1-1 attention, while others much prefer group sessions. It really does come down to you and what you need and what works best for you and how you learn. Why is it you want to take up Pilates, what is it you hope to achieve?
Think about those questions. What do you need us to help you with? Once you have that in your mind - take a few minutes to go through the different ways you can get started and whats best for you.
This is always going to be the best option. Its all about you, your body your needs - but it does come with a price tag and that tag is not always realistic for everyone.
This is a brilliant option, and exactly what Margaret has been doing for a...
Okay so yip COVID is here and we have had to make some huge changes in TYPP. Some f you reading this blog may feel sad that the way we used to run things at TYPP has been forced to change -but we hope you can begin to see. - things going forward might just be even better.
These last few months have been scary and crazy - I'm sure you have experienced that too in your own circumstances. Here in TYPP, we have been busy. Our thought was to try and use this time to completely refurb TYPP and refurb we have.
We knew we had to change things to get TYPP ready for opening - first on the list was the refurb of the Reformers. Rob from Categoryof who looks after our maintenance in the studio - has gone above and beyond our expectations. We needed the machines to be easily wipeable - this meant a full refurb.
Every machine has been fully refurbished and is perfect and ready for when we can open. And we love the new colour
Along with the refurbished reformers, the full studio has been...

"Pilates didn't work for me."
Why is it some people don't seem to get results from Pilates? I've seen and personally worked with many thousands of clients that have had amazing results - yet there's this group of people that don't seem to get results, or hate the experience of Pilates.
I thought it was a good idea to reach out to other Pilates professionals all over the UK, as well as our team here in TYPP to help me answer this.
Hannah Epps from www.pilatescommunity.co.uk sent over the list below. Reading it, a few of these stood out to me. Number 7, the goals of the client and has there been any 1-1? The serious difficulty for many is the cost associated with 1-1 - and let's face it, Pilates isn’t cheap, especially 1-1 sessions - however, it's understanding the value. How we choose to spend money...
Vital in understanding what makes Pilates, Pilates.
Many people ask if Pilates is the same as yoga. No. What makes Pilates are the principles.
The first principle is breath, everything starts as the first thing we do when we're born. It feeds every cell in our body. Without breathing, you're not doing Pilates. It's essential when you are practising your Pilates work, that breath is very much part of this. You're not holding your breath. So you must commit and learn to breathe, this will be an ongoing process. It will take time. But it's part of those principles of Pilates, and it's part of that learning for you.
The second principle is concentration to focus in and be focused on that movement and feel that movement and be in that movement. If you have no concentration, you're not present in that movement. This will allow you to switch off from the usual daily stresses of life, connecting the...
